~Feet That Takes Me~

I appreciate
At each step
That carries me forward
A stand that holds me
Keeping me walking
Despite the uncertainties
With all my trembling
You see me standing
So I learn that my feet
Keeps me walking
Standing beyond obscurities
I stand and take steps forward

Today, Im all appreciating for the feet that keeps me standing, I crossed many miles because my feet keeps me walking..

Be tender to your feet, care for them immensely, as they are the one that keeps you standing …

~A Journey Missed ~

It’s the road
When its unclear
That is what it scares us
We fear the journey
A journey unclear

Its in all of us, a fear of taking a course that seems unclear. How do we grasp on bravery to explore what waiting at the end of the road. Don’t miss the journey; you will know what awaits you when you take that path …

~ Transformed Swan ~

Originally uploaded by dennyshortt

How feminine can a woman be without her nails?
A long nails, in French manicure
Seem to be a necessity for a wedding day
As I wait for transformation
To glow in a bridal swan
I’m all that bride
With her nails and toes all done
It can only be a French manicure to beautify slick nails
Then pedicure glossing my toes

So what does it take to get married in Omani Zanzibarian culture. I would have made a movie out of it. The episodes and the need to transform into a beautiful swan, a must for every bride.

Would love to share more, I begin the episodes with nails and nail toes … SO my learning does not stop here, here bits from on nails and toes :

WordNet: manicure

The noun has one meaning:

Meaning #1: professional care for the hands and fingernails


The verb manicure has 2 meanings:

Meaning #1: trim carefully; of fingernails

Meaning #2: care for one's hand by cutting and shaping the nails, etc.

A pedicure is a way to improve the appearance of the feet, and their nails. It basically is a manicure for the feet. The word pedicure comes from the Latin words pes, which means foot, and cura, which means care. It also means the care of the feet and toenails. A pedicure can be helpful because it can prevent nail diseases and nail disorders. Pedicure is not just limited to nails, usually dead skin of feet is rubbed off using a rough stone called pumice stone.

~Poetic Management~

my new office
Originally uploaded by skaw

So I had landed myself into learning, the ways of individual within working environment. Its OB that is Organization Behavior, how a poet grasp the meaning of management and understanding Organization Behavior, I guess I start to observe and use my poetic senses to grasp about a human-being within an organization system. The word its self as OB or as we call it in long term Organization Behavior it tinkle more meaning to me, it goes beyond the reason of understanding the methodology of OB and why we study it. Is it really just to reach that peak, being on the competitive edge. It weighs more into my soul I see an individual within organization, I see dreams that put in drawing adding colors creating vision. The visions are not just a mission statement underlined as objectives yet it can be a living culture that we breathe through.

So now as I walk into my office, I start to question what culture that I’m living through my organization, how am I being part of the company’s mission. But apart of it all how poetry becomes the twinkling flame to motivate and aspire me to work poetically. Not writing poetry at office time but energize a poetic feeling while working, a second level of feeling that your soul is raised a bit higher than your body and its about an appreciation of what you as human –being is able to do. How refreshing to be inspired through the people who are around you ….

I’m blessed for living these gifts ..

"If work do not flame poetry, let you be the poetry that alight your work"
